Man oh man
I just checked the local dealership's page, and they have a used G35S 6MT with no packages--basically the car I want. It has 2200 miles on it, which makes me think it was a test-drive car. Soooo, I can probably assume it hasn't been broken in--in fact, it was probably quite abused. So, disregarding the price (which I don't know yet), what are your opinions? Would it be a bad idea to buy this car with a questionable history?
Thanks!

What kind of warranty are they offering with it?

"Warranty Yes"
[:)]
I assume it's the standard warranty. I'll ask when I call.

If it's full warranty, I wouldn't worry too much about it. Most likely, it was a test drive car, and was likely "abused." But depending on your break-in philosophy, it might actually be better that the car was pushed early on. In case you missed it, check out this thread.

What about getting the vin and checking with a place like carfax.com? I it shows a change in ownership, then maybe it is just someone who crapped out on their lease. It is only like 15 bucks, heck the dealership may even do it for you if you go there and ask for it before buying the car. This is all assuming you wont just take the dealerships word for it if you ask them [angel].

Just a thought.....

That's definitely a good thought, Ernie. Make the dealership do it as part of the deal, and make them give you a copy of the report.

OKAY. Here's the deal:
2003 G35S 6MT, Sport, Aero, Premium, Desert Plat/Willow, 2200 mi, same warranty as new, $31,900 (could haggle that lower).
I think that's a good price for that car, but if I were ordering one built for me, I'd get no packages at all, which would be $29,500 or so. So what do you think? Would I be a fool to pass this up (and buy earlier than I planned), or would I be a fool to pay more for options that I don't really want?

Reply quick, I've got to call him back today! [:)]

I'd try to haggle that used one down to the same price as the new one with no options. If they don't go for it, walk away and come back another day to order the new one (but don't let them know that's what you plan on doing).

[cheers] indeed! It was much earlier than I planned, but I talked them down to a price I was happy with, so why not?
